Get Your Digital Footprint HERE!
....And what anyone else can see about you.
What is a Digital Footprint?
Yes, that includes your Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Instagram accounts.
Although no one would really care for your singing either way.
Be sure to lock those selfies and put your account on private!
That random guy you accepted through mutual friends? He can see all of your tagged baby pictures. Thanks, mom.
So... Who cares?
Yup, still there.
What is MY Digital Footprint?
Leisure and Its Importance
Facebook and Twitter are used to communicate with people I know and for entertainment.
I follow a lot of interests on Facebook and Twitter.
I use Google and any of its side bars to do projects or more formal works.
Facebook, Twitter, and Google
I only use Twitter for follow interests, so the things it says about me is that I am interested in the Army, I am athletic and enjoy running, and I am a fun person.
The only things I have on Google is different projects and presentations. People who see it might say I look like a very studious person.
These three social media will impact my future in many ways, such as
- Choosing a Career
- Education (Colleges, Universities)
- Who I'm Seen As

That's not what SHE thinks.http://www.granvillecsd.org/webpages/lgrandjean/imageGallery/digital%20footprints.jpg
MY digital footprint can impact my future in many ways. I mostly post positive things about myself, which I hope help me in the long run.
Yes, there are helpful digital footprints,
- Helping portray interests
- Posting services/volunteer work
- Relevant Pictures
But, while there are good things, there are also harmful footprints,
- Inappropriate posts
- Bad language
- Negative interests
So...What Can I Do?! Is it Too Late?
You can do many things to improve your online identity.
- Clear up any negative posts/pictures
- Publish POSITIVE posts
You can always delete some of the negative posts or make new ones clearing up any misunderstandings.
After that, publish some posts that will make a positive impact!
What I Have Learned This Semester.
I didn't know what went online would affect us in the future or even that it was important.
I learned that to maintain a positive digital identity is to post positive things about yourself and portray yourself as someone positive and likable.
